Family dinners are something that we do every night without fail. We turn off the TV, put away the phones and gather around the table to enjoy a meal. It’s our time to connect as a family after a busy day. It’s often the only time that all of us are together. We talk about our day and what is to come, we try new foods and we model manners for our kids. Of course, just like any family, there are moments when dinner didn’t come out as expected, when we have to beg our kids to eat just one more bite, and when we spend too much time trying to stop our 1-year-old from throwing food. Even with the spaghetti on the floor, family dinners are the most important part of our day.
As my kids get older we’re getting more comfortable venturing out for meals. We’re still spending that quality family time together but someone else gets to cook. Having five mouths to feed means eating out can get a little pricey. I love taking advantage of any deals to save money, especially if that means visiting a restaurant where my kids can eat for free. Connecticut has several restaurants where kids eat free on select days including participating locations at Wayback Burgers (Bristol, Cheshire, Derby, East Windsor, Granby, Hamden, Meriden, Norwalk, Old Saybrook, Orange, Rocky Hill, Stratford, Torrington, Waterbury and West Hartford – List subject to change.)
I started noticing Wayback Burgers (formerly Jake’s Wayback Burgers) popping up all over the state a few years ago. It’s a casual family dining restaurant that has the look and feel of restaurants from the past. It resembles a simpler, friendlier time when food was easy.
I love that they offer old-fashioned American food in a family-friendly environment. The food is freshly prepared and brought to your table on metal trays on”old” newsprint. I appreciate that it comes out fairly quickly because every experienced parent knows that waiting for food is the worst part. Thankfully there are TVs inside the restaurant if you forget to bring your own entertainment. They even offer the option to order your food online ahead of time to avoid any long waits. Genius!
The menu consists of classic American food: signature burgers, build-your-own burgers, sandwiches, salads, milkshakes, and sides. They also have a kids’ menu that includes cheeseburgers, chicken tenders, hot dog and grilled cheese. Each kids’ meal comes with a kids’ fry and drink. Kids eat free at participating Wayback locations every Wednesday with purchase of adult combo meal. The food is always good, even my sometimes picky eaters can find something they like to eat.
Wayback Burgers helps us enjoy our family dinners outside of our home. We still talk about our day and model good table manners but this time someone else is in charge of cleaning the floor.
